And this shows the horizontally mounted roller board beneath the Great soundboard.

The windows picture manager does not allow a specific file size to be chosen, but selects between too small or too big sometimes. Here is one that is really too small!
Windows picture manager appears to only allow certain compressions, the one lower than 200kb is 38kb, where much detail is lost. I shall try the 200kb first in case it works
I just need to compress them to below 190 kb. Am working on that.

Please can you email me photos? It would be nice to get them on the site somewhere

Best wishes

Thanks for the pictures you sent via email. This site has a maximum limit to the size of file you can add this is why they would not attach.
The organ is tracker (with aluminium squares) but the pedal is pneumatic and quite a few of the Great bass notes are tubed off as well. In addition the roller board I can make out is mounted horizontally under the great, so you may not have noticed it.

My main problem is that I am looking for a free standing instrument and this one was made to fit in a stone alcove. It is not clear that the pedal chest could be moved to form a side wall as the slider action appears to be mounted on it.
I'm also slightly concerned about the evidence of electricians being in and would need to know that any disturbance they has caused had already been dealt with by the OBs maintaining the organ.
Aslo our height restrictions are 3m70 at the sides rising to a clearance height of 5m18. There is no photograph of the front pipes, so I can't even estimate.

We can discuss details via email.
Like many people, I live somewhere to small to buy a classical organ, even though they sell for very little on eBay. So for me like many others I have to settle for a digital.

At the moment I have an AT30R, which for its size has a big sound which even by today's standard sounds pretty authentic. Now however I wish to upgrade to another Atelier.

Now, my question is should I upgrade to last generation Atelier such as an 60SL or 80SL, or is it worth spending more to buy an AT300 or AT500. The later options are still cheaper than the 800-900 which cost way more than their smaller counterparts.

Living in a flat the AT30R is the best choice so it would have to be one similar but upgraded. The AT800 and 900 are not necessary.

I have looked on Youtube, but the sound quality varies and it is hard to make a comparison for the last generation to the newer generation.

Is there anybody out there that has had both that can tell me if the differences are major and what are the benefits of either are.

I am sure others would like to know as well, as they might want classical they can also extent upon with a larger genre of music.
Harpsichords / Have you Seen the Classical Harpsichord on eBay

I have just been looking on eBay UK when I saw a Regency style Classical Harpsichord which has been made authentic through purpose ageing then given a Steampunk feel, comes complete with Chair. Custom Design restoration on a commission piece. Would love to buy it as I mostly play Classical onward but the price is a bit high. You can make offers but it might still be a bit out of my realm. It looks stunning though and the restorer states it took 2.6 years to complete. Looking at it I can see why.

I would love to know what anyone else thinks of it. Are is Rotherham, a bit too far away for me to go and see.
Hi David,
I am unable to successfully upload the photos for some reason, however I can forward the email containing them, if that would help? If you could drop me a line at, I shall get back to you!
